Heritage Village is located in Pinellas County Florida near Clearwater where I use to live. It’s a great place that has many historical buildings and displays. This painting was done on location right inside this historic homestead. Growing up, I had a spool bed that looked exactly like this one. The light coming in the window by the bedspread gave this painting a spot of realism along with the warm reflective colors on the bedspread from the surrounding walls. We also filmed this which became one of our PBS television programs “Painting and Travel with Roger and Sarah Bansemer”.
